Michalek is out indefinitely with a fractured finger. Michalek already sustained a fractured finger earlier this season, and was forced to miss 16 games as a result. The 31-year-old winger will likely be sidelined for a similar period with his latest broken finger. Expect an update on the former first-round pick's status once he's able to return to the ice.
Michalek (finger) will return to the lineup Thursday against Florida. Thursday will mark the end of a 16-game absence for Michalek after he broke a finger Dec. 1. The 31-year old looks set to skate on Ottawa's second line, playing alongside Mike Hoffman and Mika Zibanejad. This set up could be a boon for Michalek, as he only produced eight points in 24 games prior to his injury.
Michalek (finger) is now on injured reserve, per NHL.com's official media site. Michalek is dealing with a fracture to his right index finger that reportedly will keep him out indefinitely. While he tends to the broken digit away from the ice, the hockey world could see more of Curtis Lazar and Colin Greening among the bottom-six group of forwards.
Michalek (finger) suffered a fractured right index finger and will be out indefinitely. The former first round pick hasn't developed into as big of a point scorer over the past few years as he's scored five goals and eight points in the first 24 games this season, but the 30-year-old's presence will be sorely missed. He will likely be replaced by Colin Greening.
Michalek suffered a hand injury Tuesday and will be out "for a while," TSN's Steve Lloyd reports. This is bad news for Michalek's owners, as it sounds like he will miss extended time with the hand injury he suffered Tuesday. It appears Colin Greening is set to get another opportunity while Michalek is out.
